There's a blockage in the bath waste, probably caused by soap build up. Run a bath, fill it to the brim, and put a hair dryer directly over the plug hole making sure it's under the water line.

Have you checked the pressure of the boiler?
The radiator and hot water sides of the system should be totally isolated.

Stick them both out into your back garden.

The fact this happens leads me to think it's some sort of pressure problem rather than the actual tap

Any suggestions?
it's interesting that the hot water flows from your mixer when the hot water pressure is lower (sink tap open). I would suspect something loose in the mixer. Shut off the hot and cold feed to the bathroom, turn on both hot and cold taps to release all water pressure, then take the mixer off the pipes and have a look inside. It might be just a loose washer. It costs nothing to look.

Do you live in a hard water area ?

Cheers Albert, will give that a go. And Jethro, bled the rads anyway, there was air in the system.
